May 13, 1976-NEWS-BANNER. Of Interest To Women It occurs to me that in the six or seven months I have been writing this column I have made a glaring om- mision on at least one subject. I&apos;m not the world's great- est expert on desserts, pro- bably because I do not have, The Cooking Corner by Lucy Aiexander nor have I ever had a sweet tooth. Having decided dessert deserves the spot at least once or twice a year, I turned desperately to my sister, Jean, who is an expert on the subject. Jean managed to grow up on peanut butter, jelly, chocolate and colas. I don't ever remember seeing her take abite of anything that was "good for her." Since I was older, there- fore, I knew everything about everything. I would lecture her ad finitum on the evils of her diet. She never paid a bit of attention to me. and has always been very beautifully svelte with a FUDGE PIE 2 eggs, well beaten 1 cup sugar I/2 cup melted oleo 1/2 cup flour 2 sq. unsweetened choco- late, melted Pinch of Salt 1 tsp.

Martha Williams tokeep your electric service dependable. For more than 30 years, natural gas was the only fuel used in Texas Power & Light Company generating plants. It was economical in cost and there was an abundant supply available. However, in recent years, the cost of gas has risen enormously and the supply is becoming increasingly uncertain. During periods of cold weather in the last several years, and again this year, supplies of gas were curtailed drastically. TP&L used large quantities of oil to keep its plants operating. Since 1971, TP&L has been steadily reducing its dependency on gas and oil with plants which use lignite coal as fuel Lignite is a more economical fuel and it's readily available from huge deposits right here in Texas. Electricity is now being produced by two lignite-fueled plants in the TP&L area, one other is under construction and others are btanned. '-''' .... ' TP&L and two other North Texas elect(C companies have a nuclear-fueled plant under construction. The first of two generating units is scheduled to be placed in operation in 1980 and the second in 1982. It's essential that TP&L continue planning and building new generating plants to make possible use of lower cost and more readily available fuels and. at the same time, keep your electric service dependable.

They Thought it a symbol of hope and purity. Other ancients believed opal favored children, amuse- ments, friendships, and feel- ings. Held between the eyes it gave good thoughts and gazed upon while on the left hand favored good desires. It was considered to be the stone of the gods and to represent love. It was un- lucky for one not seriously in love to wear the stone, its normally lucky influence be- ing reversed. Arabs believed opals fell from the heavens with flash of lighttng. Greeks believed opal gave them prophetic powers and keen foresight. Shakespeare dub- bed opal 'Queen of Gems'. With such lofty opinions of opal one might wonder why it became to be known as unlucky or unlucky unless one was born in October. The initial superstition was pro- bably circulated by, early After all, opal is one of the easiest stones to break. This often happens in cutting if it is overheated. And opal is soft, only 51/2 to 61/2 so a setter putting a prong down a little too heavily will cleave the stone. Couple these facts with the responsibility of another's goods falling on the shoulders of the cutter and setter, and you can see why this rumor was circu- GREAT DIVIDE,.
